Sponsor(s): Royal Australian Chemical Institute

Let's feature IYC in the RACI's monthly magazine, Chemistry in Australia !

The Royal Australian Chemical Institute is both the qualifying body in Australia for professional chemists and a learned society promoting the science and practice of chemistry. The RACI has over 6,000 members and was granted a Royal Charter in 1932. It is concerned with the teaching and practice of chemistry and with the application of chemistry in industry, academia and government authorities. Thus, it represents and caters for the professional needs of all chemists, providing various activities and services that encompass the profession of chemistry in Australia. The RACI is committed to maintaining and improving the status of the profession of chemistry. The RACI publishes its monthly magazine, "Chemistry in Australia", containing edited articles of a technical nature, information and news items about chemists, the chemical industry, science and industry policy, chemical industry awards, appointments and similar matters of interest to all professional chemists. It also includes reviews of new scientific books and computer software. In addition, Branches and Divisions frequently publish the proceedings of their conferences or symposia and newsletters. Special publications are also produced and are available to members. This magazine represents one of the RACI's main communication pathways to its members and will be one of the main ways members will be informed about IYC2011 activities.
